After me and my partner got chatting to a lovely man from Denmark whilst in Krabi, he we told him we were going to Phuket for a few nights. He sand the golden sand inn so highly that we got a taxi without even looking at pics reviews etc. Big mistake. We got there and the lady wanted 1000baht a night (we were told by the man from Denmark he had only paid 500) so after explaining this along with bartering, we got it for 500. We got to the room and the smell hit you like a round with Mike Tyson. It was a VERY damp and musky smell which was horrendous! It looked like it hadn't been cleaned...or aired....in over a month. No worries we thought as the room would be cleaned the following day. I must use that term loosely as we got back from a day from the beach after hoping and praying it would be better....No.
Granted @ 47 to the pound it was cheap, however you would still expect it to be clean. If you decide to go however, avoid room 4!
